In Loving Memory of Harry Edward Lake

Better known as Papa Harry to everyone. Harry’s heart knew no stranger. Everyone was family to Harry. He used his good fortune to always help others and his generosity knew no bounds. He made sure no kids ever went without, whether he was at the field buying everyone’s kids treats at the concession stand, or throwing out big Harry sized fistfuls of candy at Halloween; there wasn’t a soul who didn’t know him and his heart. To know him was to love him. The world is a better place because of him. We will all carry a piece of him and can only hope to honor his memory by carrying on his legacy of generosity and unconditional full hearted love.
With all our love,
Derek, Phil (Joan), Jeremy (Jodi), Bradley (Sandi),
all his grandkids, and great-grandkids.
